Demystifying CMC Regulatory Strategy for Biologics - Part 3: An Effective CMC Regulatory Strategy Is Possible By John Geigert, PhD, RAC - Published 06 February 2012

Note: Demystifying, according to Merriam-Webster's dictionary, is "to remove the mystery or mystique; to make rational or comprehensive." This is the third part of a series on demystifying CMC regulatory strategy for biologics. Part 1 covered the complexity of biologic CMC regulation; Part 2 examined the major differences between biologics and chemical drugs; and Part 4 will examine the challenge of adventitious agent contamination control for biologics. Failures in the chemistry, manufacturing and controls (CMC) regulatory strategy for biologics abound: a recombinant enzyme is delayed in gaining market approval because the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concludes that "the commercial process is not representative of the Phase 3 material used to establish the safety and efficacy profile; "a recombinant protein is rejected by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) because "with regard to Quality a large number of outstanding issues remained" (e.g., lack of product comparability, insufficient stability data, manufacturing process not adequately validated); a recombinant protein is withdrawn from the US market because a "minor change in the formulation" leads to spontaneous syncope (fainting).
